Three orbitals are called the 2p orbitals.

So I have three of them.

So their names of the orbitals are the same as the names of the shell, and

let's just think about the second shell for a second.

We've come out from the n equals 1, we've moved a little further away.

So we're a little further away out here.

This is the second shell.

In this second shell, there's two subshells.

There's the s and there's the p, okay?

The s subshell only has one orbital.

It's called a 2s orbital.

The p subshell has three orbitals, okay.

They're each called 2p.

They're oriented and spaced differently.

We'll see that in a little bit here, but those are the three p orbitals, 'kay?

By three, I mean there's three of them.

There's three orbitals, each orbital is called a 2p.

Now at any time that you're not catching it, back up and

listen to it again, because this is important that you see these connections.

So, we've gone from the one, first shell to the second shell.

Now we're ready to move out to the third shell.

The third distance away from the nucleus.

Let's do the values of l.

L will go from 0 up to n minus 1.

So we have 0, we have 1 and we would have 2.

'Kay?

So we are going through now,

we've done the first shell, the second shell, the third shell.

In the third shell, you would have a 3s,

you would have a 3p and you would have a 3d subshell.
